The ladies of The View are at it again. John Boehner is an emotional guy. I will admit that it does make me a little uncomfortable, but I also like the fact that a man is very emotional about the things he believes in. Joyless Behar, as usual, goes too far. She says that he had no empathy, which if you even watch the clip that they show he does have empathy. He was talking about school children having the opportunities to reach the American Dream.
I have never met the man, so I can't say what type of person he is. But, what I can say is that he is someone who worked his way up. He is a one of 11 children born to parents who didn't have a great deal of money. He took any job he could find in order to afford college. One of which was a night janitor, he is no stranger to hard work. He grew up a democrat from a democrat family. Once finishing college he started his own business and then saw from himself how government regulation and taxation sucks away the ability to hire and invest. In just a few short weeks he is going to be two heartbeats away from the presidency. If that is not something to be emotional about I don't know what is.
I have heard liberals say this is no different than how Hillary Clinton was treated when she cried before the New Hampshire primary. If memory serves it wasn't that she got emotional, what many questioned was the authenticity of the emotion that was questioned. Was she crying because she thought that America would "go backwards" if she didn't win or was she crying because she was watching her own dreams being shattered? I also seem to remember that she was behind in the polls before that press conference and then ended up winning the primary. So, obviously people didn't hold it against her, many think that it help soften her image as the ice queen.
